Anyway, I more of a collector, meaning I don't really play the card game b/c I'm 21 and don't have anyone to play with unless you count the neighborhood 10-yr-olds (no offense, anyone) and again, my boyfriend finds it pathetic. So does anyone know where -- online or otherwise -- I might be able to get the original series 1 Pokemon TCG. There's a card shop around here that sells MtG cards, which my boyfriend plays, and a bunch of stuff ranging from InuYasha TCG to the modern-day series of Pokemon cards, but they don't seem to have any of the original series 1 cards, which I find disappointing b/c when they first came out when I was like 9 they used to be worth a lot of money andd I liked to try and get some of the rarer cards for my sister's collection.
Thanks for your help.
My boyfriend finds it pathetic that 21 yrs old I still collect Pokemon just b/c I think they're cute, but in all honesty, its mostly b/c they remind me of my 6-yr-old little sister who lives on the other side of the country in New York. I plan on putting together a book/binder full of the doubles I get and sending them to her eventually, so that we can have something to talk about once we (me and my boyfriend) get our phone turned back on.
Hi there! I just started playing the pokemon tcg a few days ago, but i've been a fan of pokemon for a while. I'm really

Ugh! I recently got back into collecting Pokemon cards but I've been greeted with frustration. I used to collect cards when the only set was the Basic set. I swear, spotting the fakes was so much easier then! Recently I can't seem to tell the difference! Booster packs look like genuine booster packs. I bought 4 packs today. Two for me and two for my niece. I ended up giving her a pack that contained fake cards. The other 3 packs were genuine cards. It took us a while to even figure out that they were fake. We couldn't see through them like I used to be able to back many years ago when I collected them. The only thing that gives it away for us sometimes is the back of the card itself being dull, off-center and blurry. It is really annoying though because the booster pack had no typos and looked the same as the other 3 we bought..
How do you know how to spot fakes? I'm having a haaard time and it's really putting a downer on me wanting to start collecting again. :(
